"Saint Clair now makes the country’s and perhaps the world’s best Sauvignon Blanc. Saint Clair has won more top awards for Sauvignon Blanc in recent years than any of the three or four hundred other local producers. Although Sauvignon Blanc is clearly Saint Clair’s signature wine it has also earned trophies for Chardonnay, Merlot, Pinot Noir, and Riesling over the same period."

"A little ripper of a Riesling with honey and pacific rose apples on the nose leading to a crisp, clean citrus-laden finish. Not too sweet, not too dry, just fresh, vibrant and a winner with a lemony, seafoody salad."
Yvonne Marie-Lorkin, Manawatu Standard, 27 January 2007


"This fragrant Marlborough riesling oozes zesty tropical, citrus and stone fruit, is off-dry with a bright, lively crisp dryish finish."
Charmian Smith, Otago Daily Times, 25 April 2007


"The racy citrus and mineral flavours romp across the taste buds before a gentler more honeyed taste swings in at the back of the palate."
Deborah Walton & Peter Morice, Timaru Herald, 18 July 2007


"Marlborough is probably New Zealand's finest Riesling region, and this little number is a testament to this." For this wine "on the nose there's a mass of citrus aromatics, from limes to lemons and even mandarin. The palate is both smooth, with a strong acid spine giving it length."
Daniel Pilkington, Bay Weekend, 21 October 2006
